People in our village are walking around  in two's carrying pharmacy bags with the pretence of essential shopping.  Essential shopping should still be only one person.

These rules are to protect us all and are working (No new cases in Alicante).

We have them here as well, couples walking dogs, going for walks and going to the supermarkets ........ Absolutely no regards for the restrictions or other people’s safety, wait until next week when the initial 15 day is extended as it more than likely will!!!!

My Dear Forum members, 

I can scarcely believe what I am hearing about these ill informed cretins that persist in flouting the very clear, very easily understood rules 😈😠  Not only is it for there benefit but the benefit of the whole country that they adhere to the rules. By there defiance they mock the heroic efforts of the doctors, nurses and all frontline essential personnel who at great risk to themselves and there families potentially are working tirelessly to save the desperately sick and try to contain this contagion that is rapidly changing our lives daily. Normal routines and normal daily activities are OVER for now please understand that pronto 😠  800 deaths in just 1 day in Italy for God's sake.

I desperately appeal to the people that have witnessed these idiots to "call them out" and shame them to get home and stay home. Personally I would call the police but they have too much to do wasting time with these fool's. If you don't what will happen is the police will become more draconian, they will make your necessary journeys a really fraught and frustrating experience - in France you have to download a document saying why you are outside.  Please God the restrictions are hard enough as they are don't mess things up for sensible people that desperately need to get food and medicines quickly, with minimum fuss and intrusion and to get home as ordered.

Thank you.  We need to look out for Each other because we are dealing with a novel virsus ( not bloody flu😠😠) that is killing thousands of people across Europe more than China. Wise up fast prepare for the worst and pray for the best. Let's herd these cretins in quickly and stop them making our lives and this pandemic a 100 times worst than it already is.  Stay safe and pray its over soon which it might be if we self isolate properly !!!!!! It's working in SE Asia folks

If you are found lying the fine is going to be very much higher.

If you have to take an elderly person say to hospital then they have to sit in the back seat wearing a mask.

Car used for workers must wear mask, one in a car only 

Livestock ok to attend to

Car business only repairs and not sales

Quick food delivery only

If divorced children must stay in normal place of residence

Second homes not allowed to use unless already there

Keep it simple - stay at home period that's the rule to stop contagion spreading 

You can only go out for food, doctor appointment or pharmacy.

If you have a dog take a short walk better than nothing and get home.

1 person only in vehicles -unless exceptional circumstances - if that applies to you read the rules again for clarification and don't second guess it. Your in Spain not your country of birth. Arguing is futile the police have more important things to do 😬

Spare yourself the hassle, a large fine and possibly jail - normal life routine is over we are in a state of EMERGENCY folks.  Stay at home and make do or spend £1000 one way ticket in some cases and go elsewhere wherever that might be and do it quickly. If you fight the law here the law always Wins period 😆😆😮

It's official - Sanchez has EXTENDED the state of Alert for another 15 days till April 12

It will probably be extended again according to the Ministry of Transportation.

Settle in folks this is the REAL DEAL so get with the program so we can get over this pandemic sooner rather than later.

As the old saying goes - " If you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem "

Stay safe. Be well.Together we Win divided we fall.
